Below follows a post from Tim Frederick, our director of engineering, with a few thoughts around the megapixel camera industry and real-world benefits for end users. Keep an eye out for more technical posts coming from Tim going forward.
Once upon a time, it was relatively simple to select a surveillance camera. You’d choose price, TVL, dynamic range, low-light lux performance, back light compensation, form factor and you’d be done. But network cameras – high-definition megapixel cameras in particular – are different beasts entirely with each manufacturer pushing different features.
Municipal grids have become almost commonplace across the world -- England houses one camera for every 14 people -- and yesterday, the Associated Press reported China camera installations have topped 2.75 million since 2003. However, the reviews are mixed as far as the return on such investments.
